Selby Dispatches Gago In 9

Lee Selby called for a British battle with Carl Frampton after his dominant ninth-round stoppage victory over Andoni Gago.

The Welshman's planned IBF title defence against Jonathan Victor Barros was called off at late notice in January and Selby ended 11 months of inactivity by halting Gago at The O2.

After dropping Gago in the opening round, Selby would have expected to claim a swift victory over the Spaniard.

But Gago bravely stood his ground until a left hook unravelled his defences, prompting the referee to step in, in round 11.
